holographic telepresence

Holographic telepresence is an evolving technology for full-motion, three-dimensional (3D) video conferencing.

Holographic telepresence systems can project realistic, full-motion, real-time 3D images of distant people and objects into a room, along with real-time audio communication, with a level of realism rivaling physical presence. Images of remote people and surrounding objects are captured, compressed, transmitted over a broadband network, decompressed, and finally projected using laser beams in much the same way as a conventional hologram is produced.

Holographic telepresence has the potential to revolutionize many diverse types of communications. In telemedicine, for example, telepresence can allow medical professionals to advise and assist colleagues thousands of miles away in real time. The technology can also reduce the necessity of travel for business meetings and facilitate distance education. Other potential applications include enhanced movies and television programming, advertising, gaming, 3D mapping, aerospace navigation, robot control, and various other forms of simulation.
